The Voice That Captures Hearts

Natalie Horler was born in Bonn to British parents. Her distinctive voice lends Cascada an unmistakable sound. Inspired by her father, jazz musician David Horler, and by her early role models Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, Cascada’s vocal style was formed at a young age. Her impressive vocal quality not only distinguishes her within her musical genre; her ability to captivate audiences with her vocals and stage presence during live performances also creates unforgettable experiences for fans.

Musical milestones

“Everytime We Touch“ reached top 10 positions in many countries in 2006, including number 2 in the UK and number 10 in the US Billboard Hot 100. The song was particularly successful in Europe and North America. The debut album of the same name sold millions of copies worldwide, secured top 10 positions in numerous countries, redefining the Eurodance genre.

The recognition in the music industry was corresponding: in 2007, Cascada won the World Music Award as “World’s Best Selling German Artist“, one of the few music awards with a global focus.

Stylistic evolution: “Evacuate the Dancefloor“

In 2009, the album “Evacuate the Dancefloor“ heralded a new era for Cascada. The album signaled a stylistic shift from Cascada’s previous Eurodance sound to a more contemporary electropop style. The single of the same name was a worldwide hit. It reached number 1 in the UK charts, knocking Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror“ off the top spot. This was particularly notable as it happened shortly after Michael Jackson’s death, as many of his songs experienced a posthumous resurgence in the charts.

Versatility and Visibility

In addition to her musical successes, Natalie Horler also raised Cascada’s profile as a judge on “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” (2012) – the German version of “American Idol”; and by taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Glorious” (2013). These appearances enabled Cascada to reach an even-wider audience. Her work as a judge also established her image as a successful personality in the music industry.

Cascada: Musical Journey to New Heights

Since their international breakthrough in 2006, Cascada has established itself as one of the most influential forces in the international dance music scene. Founded in 2004, the group has sold approximately 30 million records worldwide to date. Now the charismatic lead singer Natalie Horler is aiming for further success at the pinnacle of the international hit scene with her new single “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough“ (release date: 15.3.2024). The accompanying album “Studio 24“ will be released in fall 2024.

Studio 24 – A new era

Inspired by the disco and funk era, the new album “Studio 24“ is currently in production. The collaboration with renowned German producer Christian Geller is responsible for the musical development. The new songs bring a fresh perspective to the iconic sounds that made the legendary “Studio 54“ club in New York world-famous. They once again demonstrate Cascada’s talent for integrating different musical elements into her distinctive style and appeal to both loyal fans and new listeners.

Natalie Horler describes the idea as pure passion: “What I’ve always loved about the Studio 54 era is its legendary aura and the outcry for freedom and self-expression. Back then, you could walk into the club naked or ride in on a white horse. Nobody batted an eyelid. I just love that kind of thing.“

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough“ – a modern classic

The first single “Ain’t no Mountain High Enough“ is a modern and powerful interpretation of the soul classic by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell – newly produced with the unmistakable Cascada flair. The song is regarded in music history as one of the great classics of soul and the Motown era. The message of unwavering devotion and the willingness to overcome any obstacle has turned the song into a timeless embodiment of love and connection.
